I'm not a coder or packager, so didn't understand most of the code,
but I enjoy a good puzzle. I think this is the clue in the code:

'users' => [
		      'icon' => 'default',
		      'realname' => 'Myrddin Wyllt',
		      'uid' => undef,
		      'groups' => ['dialout'],
		      'name' => 'merlin',
		      'shell' => '/bin/bash',
		      'gid' => undef

Viviane is one of the many names for the Lady of the Lake. Maybe
not many Mageia packagers have studied Arthurian legend? :-)
